       A5                              
And if you don't love me now, you will never love me again.
      D5             Bb5              C5
I can still hear you sayin' you would never break the chain.
       A5
And if you don't love me now, you will never love me again.
      D5             Bb5              C5
I can still hear you sayin' you would never break the chain.

Verse 2(use the same progression as verse 1):
Listen to the wind blow
Down comes the night

Runnin' in the shadows
Damn your love
Damn your lies

Break the silence
Damn the dark
Damn the light

(the solo at the end is really easy, Iíll just show you the 
notes to hit and youíll be able to figure it out from there.)

VERSE 1
    D                 A
You think you hear demons
     G                A
I think we are the demons
  D        A
In this place 
      G              A
where the images are born
    D             A
You remember your childhood
 G               A
Oh, in fiery sequences,the sun goes down  

CHORUS
G   D   A                            G  D  A
          Filling the air with colors        and winds

                       G  D  A(hold)
That lift you up to God


VERSE 2(play intro)
You fall to your knees
You embrace the storm
You no longer care
If itís cold or if itís warm
You live for the danger
Like your passion and your anger, you donít let go

CHORUS
You like to be twisted by the force
You like to be shaken by the wind
In this game that you play with God
Youíve been warned to retreat

VERSE 3
You take it to the limit
When the winds come up
Crazy men, crazy women
Cryiní out for love
Youíd like to save her
But you just canít give it up

CHORUS
Youíd rather be wrapped up
In the arms of the storm
Youíd rather be wrapped up
In the arms of the storm
Crazy men, crazy women
In the storm
And the sun goes down
Chasing down the demons
You think you hear demons
Chasing down the demons
Crying out for love
